Ah, but very frequently, the opening of the hard shoulder lane is due to traffic density (that was the idea of them) and is normally accompanied by "traffic congestion, stay in lane".
If you are in several lanes of traffic, all moving at approximately the same speed then any "undertaking" is permitted - check highway code section 6 para 268 which deals specifically with this.
Common sense prevails when changing lanes in these circumstances, if it is safe to do so then the hard shoulder lane should be used by those able to move over into it.
So, yes Shuggy - he is for real; as a professional HGV driver you would be aware of this and so I hope you were being ironic
